Produced in harmony with nature

Annatto from Plantation | Cybercolors

We source only the highest quality raw materials from specialist plantations based all over the world, with whom we have developed strategic partnerships over decades.

We extract the colour locally in order to cultivate the highest levels of bioactive material and we return the unused vegetable matter back into the farm to nurture the soil.

Our natural food colours are fully biodegradable, highly sustainable and produced in harmony with nature.
